Dominique Fléchon, historian and expert in Fine Watchmaking at the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie, is the author of a major work on the history of time measurement from its origins to the present day. This new book fills a void of more than half a century in publications on this theme.
The Mastery of Time will be a milestone in publications on one of the greatest adventures in the history of mankind: to master the measurement of time. The Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie (FHH), which is publishing the book in conjunction with Les Editions Flammarion, is proud to present this body of knowledge, patiently committed to paper by Dominique Fléchon, historian and expert in Fine Watches. True to its vocation to promote the culture of horology in all its forms and in every corner of the world, the FHH fills a void as no book had addressed this theme in such an exhaustive fashion, covering both history and techniques since 1950.
The Mastery of Time is the ultimate reference work for anyone for whom telling the time is never a necessary inconvenience, but a source of wonder!
